True Parent/Children Relationship and easier UI to manage

Make it easier to create and manage Parent/Child relationships.  Use an easier UI such as a file directory hierarchy along with drag & drop, to display and manage the relationships. Setup "one-click" rules to manage alerts for children of a parent.  If Parent x goes down, one check in a box will silence all alerts on the children. The groups function right now is OK, but it doesn't allow for true relationships, multiple levels down.

  • I completely agree with this request.  The way you need to setup dependencies is far to complicated.  I agree with Marc Coxall that NPM should be able to determine parent/child relationships based upon traceroutes and other information they already gather.  They are able to create links in the Network Atlas based upon the L2/L3 information returned from certain devices.  Why not use that information to create/suggest relationships and dependencies?
